BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Florida was predicted to win to the 2015 Southeastern Conference women's soccer title in voting by the league's 14 head coaches. This marks the 17th time that the Gators have been tabbed by the coaches to win the title.

The Gators received 167 points that included 11 first-place votes, topping Texas A&M's 149 points (two first-place votes). Kentucky received one first place vote.

Florida returns six starters, including 2015 MAC Hermann Trophy candidates - junior forward Savannah Jordan and senior defender Christen Westphal, from the 2014 team that advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinal Round.

Points were compiled on a 13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 basis, though each coach was not allowed to vote for their own team.

The 23rd season of women's soccer in the SEC season begins August 21.
